Montreal: Québec City Jewish community, June 15

Simon Jacobs will speak on the history of the Jewish community of Québec City at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal on Monday, June 15.

The event, which will begin at 7.30pm, is in association with the Jewish Public Library and will be held at the Gelber Conference Centre, 5151 Cote Ste-Catherine/1 Carré Cummings.

A London UK native, Jacobs has lived in Quebec City since he began performing with the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec (OSQ) in 1989. He is past president of the Quebec City Jewish community, and is currently involved with the Cemetery Corporation Beth Israel.

Jacobs was founder and executive director of Exposition Shalom Québec, which Tracing the Tribe covered here in May 2008.
